Re: What Media did you last get??

That probably means they sound good if you dont like it. Lol. Then again cassettes sound bad compared to most other audio formats.

Hey Paul thank you for your entry Mate

I get stuff either in the mail or salvation army mostly......

I last got this

1) CASSETTE: Dire Straits - Brothers in arms
2) CASSETTE: Taylor Dayne - Tell it to my heart
3) VHS: Its a mad mad mad mad world (1963) - I got this in the mail (First 1981 magnetic video release)
4) VHS: The Client - 1994 (I also got this in the mail)

I tell ya the CREED cassette I got the other day is outstanding (Newest cassette I have that sounds this good)

THIS ALBUM IS FROM 1999 and I cant believe how good it sounds on the cassette!! (No heavy bass,just sounds goregous)

No Dolby on the tape that might be 1 reason it sounds so good..... This is said to be thier BEST ALBUM and I can see why partly..... It was produced excellent for 1999! (It sounds excellent in analogue)

Re: What Media did you last get??

A cassette from 1999. Surely it has dolby NR or some other noise reduction. Its a good thing as it helps tapes sound clear and reduces background noise. Tapes were prone to it. I was buying nothing but CDs by that point, still have them all. Though not long after I bought a minidisc recorder.

Re: What Media did you last get??

As far as I'm aware, we'll what I can remember. Doesn't matter if a tape was duplicated with Dolby or not.

It's the player that decodes the dolby signal. So if the tape deck doesn't have the circuits for it then it won't have any effect.

All Dolby NR did was to reduce the tape hiss making the tape sound cleaner. Tapes were created to be a cheaper format, and inherently it needed Dolby to improve the quality of the recording playback. Dolby NR stopped being licensed in 2003 after pre-recorded tapes stopped being prodiced .

However in recent years some bands and artists have started to release cassettes of recent releases. No Dolby is around. However digital recordings and current ways to duplicate tapes does help reduce the hiss present. I have bought a few new tapes recently but never listened to them.
